Olive LAC 1003

If I was an adult and I was giving advice I would say, “…I don’t know what road you are going to go down, but I promise I will be right there by you.”

“Olive” [b. January 2009] is a bright, intelligent, artistic, likable, and beautiful young lady.

Olive (pronouns are she / her) also discovered fencing not long ago, which she enjoys. Olive has a desire to learn and do well academically now that she is in high school. Olive gets along well with other peers. Olive likes to play video games as well, and can spend a couple of hours just doing so. Olive enjoys eating home-cooked meals, but she won’t say no to doing takeout once in a while.

Olive wishes to improve academically and the school is helping Olive bring her academic performance up to grade level. Olive also is making steady progress in therapy toward learning how to better handle and appropriately express her feelings/emotions/impulse control, and personal boundaries. Olive’s self-esteem and self-advocacy are improving as well.

Olive would like to find an adoptive family that is patient and understanding and would be open to maintaining a relationship with Olive’s younger half-siblings. If you think your family might be a good fit for Olive, please let us know. We are ready to help make Olive’s tomorrow a brighter one as part of an adoptive family..
